Title The Manti Herald and Sanpete Advertiser
Description THE MANTI HERALD AND SANPETE ADVERTISES Conrad Frischknecht 12225 Shady Wood Lane S.W. Tacoma, WA 98498 Senior Citizen Division First Honorable Mention Historical Essay THE MANTI HERALD AND SANPETE ADVERTISER F. C. Robinson Editor and Publisher January 31, 1867__________No. 1 Vol. 1 The above is the masthead of what probably was Manti's first newspaper. It preceded Jakeman's Manti Sentinel by 18 years. It may also have been the first newspaper in Sanpete County. Under date of March 20, 1867, the editor of the Herald tells of having received a copy of the first issue of the Sanpitcher, published by David Candland at Mt. Pleasant. The Manti Herald consisted of three ruled columns on a single sheet of writing paper. At first only one side of the paper was used. In later issues, the ads appeared on the reverse side. There is no knowledge of a printing press in Sanpete at that early date. Cecil Alter, in his Early Journalism in Utah, refers to the Mantl Herald as a "manuscript" newspaper written by hand and printed by pen and ink. That is exactly what it appears to be. The best way to become acquainted with a paper is to read it. It is the aim of this paper to minimize comment by the writer in order to maximize space for quotations. All following quotes preserve spelling, capitalization and punctuation of the original: BY TELEGRAPH BY TELEGRAPH -0- -0- G.S.L.
